    A Song For Mother

    I sing, I sing, for it hurts to cry
    And the “why?” rings in my mind;
    with my hands I recreate beauty
    and that is why I sing and sing so much…

    …so much like a sorrowful night
    that amid nature’s aroma
    the moaning of music is purity
    that sprouts out of the words of my song.

    I am seduced be the sensation, so beautiful
    of reliving the brief journey
    that is a star’s cry.

    It is my reminiscent Love letter;
    I know that my song reaches her
    Because I lay my soul in her memory.

      I love the blues that you used. And the poem hits home because I lost my own mother back in May. Instead of, "Why?" ringing in my mind, it has been, "Not my Mama!"

      It's remarkable to me how I feel looking at this image and the other you and A colored. The emotions they evoke are so different. beautiful...

      Thank you all! :-)

      Artful Synchronicity--I'm so sorry for your loss. I wish you much peace and healing. My mother took her life a year ago this Nov. 11, just 4 days shy of her 50th birthday. The first four lines of this poem resonates deeply with me...I could easily drown in "why's"...so many why's...but I'm finding my healing in music...art...my community.
      Hoping both of our mother's hear our songs and rest in peace.
      Hugs to you.

      Jamie what a beautiful piece you have put together. Did you write the poem? You are one talented lady and I love you so much. Your mom, my sister would be so very proud of you.

      I love you too, Aunt Wandy! The poem isn't mine...but it feels like it was written for me. :-)
